We need an independent party, now, to lift Greenwich out of the stagnant cesspool dug and maintained by our two major parties, who divvy up the power between themselves, quash challengers and seek simply to maintain the failing status quo. The latest?
Greenwich Post will have a letter tomorrow from Republican Town Committee – approved BOE candidates Bernstein and Paldonus savaging Peter Sherr and Herr Pieter von Schnitzlegrüber for various despicable apostasies, including daring to defy their Republican bosses.
All this is standard fare for Greenwich; witness the defenestration of Inland Wetlands Chairman Lawrence Perry: Drew Marzullu (D) and this fellow Theis (R) knocked him off because he wouldn’t promise to kill the synagogue in their Cos Cob neighborhood, Tesei (R) joined in the fun because Perry had offended rich Republican donors on Zaccheus Mead Road. Greenwich residents got hosed.
I’m not surprised that Republican Chairman Jim Campbell has sicced his Chihuahuas on these dissidents, but I’m very sorry to see Brain Paldonus go along; I’d hoped for better things from him.
